    A new U.S. based giga factory just for Cybertruck

    Tesla spends way more money than the OEMs do, or any company for that matter. Not only building new factories, but also all the Superchargers, Service Centers and Galleries all over the world. Then they have to hire and train a workforce from scratch since 2012 basically. No wonder the OEMs...

    A new U.S. based giga factory just for Cybertruck

    That's at current prices without any stimulus. Now take $8000 off those prices and then look at demand. ICE manufacturers gotta be nervous.

    A Tesla Co-Founder Aims To Build an Entire U.S. Battery Industry

    Hmmm, this talk of very few recycled auto batteries got me thinking. What about ALL the Bolt batteries? I wonder what is going to happen to all those batteries?

    JALOPNIK: Why A Tesla Using FSD Running A Stop Sign Isn't Necessarily Terrible

    I wonder if the algorithm has to do with it being a 4-way stop, and obviously no cars near to the intersection there's no need to stop. That would be an interesting conversation with the cop sitting there waiting to write tickets for that very infraction. Hopefully the Tesla engineers have the...

    VIDEO - Tesla Cybertruck TeraFactory Site Construction Is Well Underway

    If you look around 11:20 in the video, you can see that area is all bare metal. All those packages are the roofing material. First they put down blocks of foam, then on top of that, they put down the white vinyl.

    Elon Musk claims Ford and auto worker union wrote the new electric car incentive bill

    Exactly! Prices are based on what people will pay. That's also why we want more players in the field. We the consumer get more choice, then we get a better toy, at a better price.

    Electrek: Dems propose new $12,500 electric car rebate, Tesla left with $4,500 disadvantage

    What a novel thought. What's also funny/strange to me is how there's this argument that EV's are simple to build and take less labor. Yet, these OEMs can't do it.

    Elon Musk claims Ford and auto worker union wrote the new electric car incentive bill

    The more I think about this, the more I understand the response from Dids the other day. We all seem to agree that even with a $7,500 disadvantage, Tesla is able to sell all the vehicles they can make, at a profit. While I agree it's a BS move to play favorites. I also see that these OEM...

    Oil & acid in the frunk to avoid smells in the cabin I hope.

    Professional Appearance

    The one piece of advice I have. If you show up in your fancy Tesla and act like you don't want to get dirty, that "could" be a problem. Buy some good liners for the floor and cargo area, and enjoy yourself. Hope you don't miss riding up high in your truck. It's a temporary fix, until you get...

    4680Cell Cybertruck coming soon

    Good ole Lombard St. Back in the late 80's I had a Subaru wagon, and I was driving from Oregon coast to So. Cal. with my trusty companion, a yellow Lab named Breeze. It was night and Breeze needed a break from the drive, so I let him out at the top of Lombard and he jogged along behind my...

    I may not agree with this, but I commend you for a very well-thought-out and written response. Well done.

    Watch Rivian R1T Submerge To The Level Of Its Lights

    Looks like a civilized Cybertruck, not nearly as brutal looking.

    Electrek: Dems propose new $12,500 electric car rebate, Tesla left with $4,500 disadvantage

    I hope Ford builds the Lightning and all their vehicles in the US. I read this article and may have wrongfully assumed they were going to produce Lightnings, with Mach-E in Mexico...
